Merci beaucoup ! Je recommence le tricot après une quinzaine d'années d'interruption... alors parfois je me pose des questions un peu "bêtes" !!! Je croyais qu'il fallait continuer chaque côté séparément d'où ma question. Encore merci.

Bonjour, Sur les explications du dos, il est dit de tricoter jusqu'à 47 cm puis de tricoter au point de riz sur les 52 mailles centrales et de rabattre à l'endroit à 50 cm de hauteur totale. question : à partir du moment où on travaille sur les mailles centrales que fait-on des mailles de côté avant de tout rabattre à 50 cm de hauteur totale ?... rien n'est dit à ce sujet. merci de votre réponse.

Bonjour Madame Bruyat-Duperray, pour le dos,à partir de 47 cm de hauteur totale, vous tricotez les 52 m centrales au point de riz et les autres mailles comme avant et vous rabattez toutes les mailles à 50 cm de hauteur totale. Bon tricot !
